This Rosé, made of typical Provençal grapes – Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah – is bottled at the Domaines Famille Quiot (est. 1748) for Houchart.
On the eyes, it’s a pretty, pale salmon with a soft nose and dry palate of strawberry juice, honeysuckle blossom, soft white pepper and green leaf.
There is not a lot of complexity which makes the $20 price tag a little hard to take; this is basic Rosé.
But, it’s good for the porch – which is where we enjoyed it on a hot, summer afternoon.
